    Another Roxio nightmare

    Running XP, roxio 5.1 EZCD platinum will not allow me to copy a CD. I have the latest roxio updates. I am using a HP 9100 series CDRW with the latest XP driver. There is no help in sight from Roxio. I can make music CDs or transfer video images but if try to make a backup copy of XP or any program it freezes up while running CD copier.

    I have heard there may be a conflict with direct CD, but I no confirmation. I certainly can change to other software but I paid $49 for this crap and I would to get some use out of this.

    To solve your problem, connect your CD-ROM and CD-RW to different controllers (ribbon cables). They are probably connected to the same controller, that prevents to copy CD to CD. Workaround is: copy CD contents to hard drive first, and burn copy CD next.

    I use Roxio's option to record contents to hard drive and still doesn't work, but I will try to switch the cables. I was instructed to keep the CD-ROM/RW cables off the HD because it improves performance, but if I can't copy CD's then where's the improvement.
